Menu items from Holy 'Que Smokehouse; can't you almost smell them?

Holy ‘Que Smokehouse in Lahaska is celebrating May’s National BBQ Month with an expanded menu and on-the-house sides. PhillyGrub blogger Marilyn Johnson roasted her competition in the race to cover the story on NewsBreak.

Holy ‘Que Smokehouse opened in 2020 under the ownership of pitmaster Tom Peters. He is a self-made expert who invested six years of study on Texas-style barbecue.

Peters’ menu is decidedly traditional: smoked meats, classic sides, and Southern-sweet desserts.

The list of savory entrées, sold by the pound, comprises racks of pork spare ribs, brats, brisket, pulled pork, and turkey. The sandwich menu features mouth-watering fare like The Holy Grail (an oversized sandwich of brisket, pulled pork and links) and the brisket cheesesteak (chopped brisket, sautéed onions, house-made cooper sharp/cheddar cheese blend).

The complimentary sides for the month are fairly traditional: pinto beans, mac and cheese, cider slaw, various vegetables, and honey cornbread.

Chow hounds with room remaining for dessert can dig into a cast-iron cookie or a rich banana pudding.

The beverage menu is nonalcoholic (sweet tea, etc.), but guests eating onsite can BYOB.

Hours of operation are Thu. to Sat., Noon–6:00 p.m.; Sun, Noon–4:00 p.m. Beware: The food here is in such demand, it often sells out.
